Maybe someone should do a remake? Reimagining?? of M7 set in an Afgan village, with a squad of American soldiers as the 7 and a warlord as the bandits. Probably too political.

While we're dreaming, how about a remake of Starship Troopers getting Heinlien's ideas right?

Speaking of THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN--or rather, THE SEVEN SAMURAI--there was an anime series that was a remake of TSS, but this time given a science fiction twist and set in the future following an interstellar war. It was made with the approval of Kurosawa's estate and was actually pretty good (my opinion, of course!).

I do need to see THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN; whenever Fuqua and Washington work together the movie has always been good (TRAINING DAY, THE EQUALIZER).
